Irish Brown Bread (sent in by Eimear O’Kane)
Mix all these dry ingredients together :
200g white flour
300g coarse brown flour
3 tbs bran
2 tbs wheatgerm
2 heaped tsp baking powder
1 level tsp salt.
Add 1 dessert spoon of treacle (I often use less) and enough of milk (600 – 900 mls) to give a moist not sloppy mixture.
Put in well oiled 2 lb loaf tin at oven preheated to 200 degrees centigrade.
After 20 mins or when risen, reduce temperature to 170 degrees centigrade and continue baking for a further 45 – 60 mins depending on your oven.
Option: usually I use a bit less brown flour and add seeds to make up the difference.
